Ultramarine Blue pigment developed by chemists

Nubiola has developed a new Ultramarine Blue for cementitious formulations. The new blue is available in two pigments that make up the Nubicem B series.

Nubicem B-101 is an Ultramarine Blue recommended for indoor use, as well as outdoors where water contact is not extreme. Nubicem B-201 is Ultramarine Blue modified with Cobalt. It is recommended for use indoors and out.

The Ultramarine Blues are designed to be compatible with cementitious formulations. Thanks to Nubiola’s knowledge of pigment encapsulation, it has succeeded in making a product that minimizes interaction with the cement paste.

The line is recommended for applications such as colored mortar, stucco or plaster, ready-mixed or precast colored concrete, or colored grout joints for ceramic tiles. It also has benefits in noncementitious applications such as formulations based on lime, highly alkaline coatings or coatings over a high-alkaline substrate.
